These were really good.I topped mine with cheese cuz I like cheese with my potato pancakes and had meatballs on the side. The only thing I will do different next time is add some baking powder to get them a little fluffier
OMG. I've tried many potato pancakes recipes but never thought about putting them in a waffle iron. I don't care how much you modify them, this cooking technique is the key to this recipe. Absolutely perfect and crispy. And without using oil to fry, they almost seemed healthy. Thank you SuperWifey.
Dear Wifey- I nearly flew to my waffle iron to try your recipe and the flavor did not disappoint. I did tweak the recipe (as I always do potato pancakes) by adding 1 tsp of onion powder and 1/2 tsp white pepper and omitting the garlic (and I use Russet potatoes)... The problem I can see happening to others (as it did to me), is that everybody's recipe for mashed potatoes is going to vary in texture and moisture... so my first two waffles turned out so tender I could hardly get them out of the iron. By the third waffle, I had added probably double the flour, used 1/2 cup of batter, and cooked it over 7 minutes. I have a great waffle iron (been using it for 30 years) so I know to have it thoroughly preheated and normally can cook any waffle recipe in exactly 5 minutes. I will definitely try the recipe again with either less potato or more flour because I love your idea... good use of leftover potato, reduced use of oil, fun to serve, and good flavors!
When my husband saw me fire up the waffle maker, he had his mouth set for butter and maple syrup, so these waffles took him by surprise! I had sour cream and chive instant mashed potatoes in my pantry. I mixed those up according to package directions and then just added the flour and eggs in this recipe. The waffles couldn't have been simpler and were very tasty served topped with shredded Cheddar, plain yogurt, and a sprinkling of chopped green onions. I will definitely make these again.
It's not very often that a recipe from Allrecipies fails for me but this one did. All went well until it went into the waffle iron. We make waffles at least once a week so it's not as if our iron doesn't work but after 10 minutes with the potato mixture in the waffle iron it was still a gooey mess no closer to being cooked than it was when it went in. I would make sure that if yo attempt this that you have a super hot waffle iron.
Made these last night with leftover mashed potatoes they were amazing! I usually dont like potato pancakes because of the gooey texture and oil but this way they are crispy and delicious. I made per the recipe but added shredded cheddar to the mix. So yummy!!
Fun twist to potato pancakes! I added some finely shredded cheddar and green onion to the mix and used bisquick mix instead of just flour. Just use your waffle maker's instructions for the baking time. The flavor was great and they were crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Good side to mini meatloaves stuffed with leftover stuffing cause ketchup goes with both!
